It Included the “Must Haves” for Business Schools

At a time when many business schools are considering new facilities to accommodate their increasing enrollment, some really understand what’s needed.

The leaders and design team of the Henry W. Bloch School of Management Executive Hall understood the essentials needed for a 21st century facility. The building was highlighted in the September-October 2014 edition of BizEd Magazine – “What to Build When You’re Building.”

The “must-have” features in Executive Hall, according to BizEd, include “flexible classrooms that can fluidly move between lecture formats and small-team discussions,” featuring whiteboard and video screen technology on all four sides of the rooms to avoid neck strain during group sessions; plus trading rooms and finance, behavioral research and innovation labs.

Another essential is the technology that is a huge part of the Bloch building. It is throughout the flexible classrooms, and it’s “in spaces like the finance lab, which offers 32 computer workstations and access to live market feeds.”

The other recently opened buildings in the issue were Rutgers Business School of New Brunswick and Newark and the E. J. Ourso College of Business at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.

BizEd Magazine is a bi-monthly magazine for individuals and organizations involved or interested in collegiate business education.
